Even though we will have a little while to wait until the outcome of the planning application, we are confident that the full infill of the railway cutting will be rejected by Leeds City Council.
Again, thanks to all our supporters for submitting objections, at the last count we were well over 350! If you know anyone that still needs to submit one, it appears the portal is still open!
In anticipation of the planning application being rejected, we are pressing ahead with obtaining funding for the feasibility study. To that end, Andrew, David, and Martin met on 4th December, with representatives of Sustrans to talk about possible avenues. We are still in need of a fundraising coordinator, so if you think that could be you please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our plan now is to contact organisations that have previously told us they may be able to match fund some of the cost. Once we know how much they are prepared to match fund, we will know how much we need to raise as an organisation.
We welcome any help or suggestions, so if you have any ideas for funding, please do get in touch.
